Minnesota senior forward is hospitalized in intensive care at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., with a skull fracture, the result of an injury suffered Sunday during the Gophers' win at Minnesota State.
Doctors at St. Mary's Hospital in Rochester, where Pohl was airlifted, performed surgery to stabilize the fracture and stop bleeding on the brain.
Pohl was hurt a little more than six minutes into the second period of the deciding game in the best-of-three WCHA playoff series after he was elbowed in the head by Maverick sophomore forward Jason Wiley. Pohl's head then hit the boards before he went down on the ice. Wiley was given a five-minute major penalty and a game disqualification for the hit.
